Old Sign Seen in Leeds

Sign No Hawking Leeds

This picture shows an old sign "No Hawking" somewhere off the York Road in Leeds.

I had parked my car to get my satnav out and find the old cemetery I was looking for. I thought I would have a quick mooch around nearby see if there was anything interesting when I noticed this old sign built into an old gateway.

"No Hawking" not something you might come across here in England this last 30 years or so I guess. From my childhood I think this means no pedlars, no one hawking their goods. I have not seen a sign like this since my childhood and was surprised to see this old one.

I also got to explore a little of Seacroft hospital and took a few photos for this blog, but that will be for another day.

  1. I'm glad the sign didn't say No Photography.

  2. Hi - really love your blog. I tried doing the photo-a-day thing and putting them on my Facebook page. I am neither a good enough photographer or committed enough. I found this when I was looking for some info about Leeds Library for my blog - it's not about Leeds but I live in the area and it cropped up.
